MOTHER'S BIG BAD MONSTERS

October 18, 1959

If an occasional mother frets about football, it is not the fear of broken bones that plagues her; it is the awful possibility of meeting her son face to face in the public prints and not recognizing him. America's collegiate footballers are, almost without exception, fine-looking young men. Yet each week—presumably in the hope of scaring the opposition away even before the game begins—college press-agentry presents them to the public in a series of hideous grimaces well calculated to send even Count Dracula screaming off in search of another Bloody Mary made with real blood. To reassure football mothers, we herewith present four young athletes from the U.S. Naval Academy—as they appeared in the press last week and as they look in real life.
